Horchata

Horchata is a very common drink here in Mexico made of a combination of rice milk and dairy milk (or you can simply substitute soy/almond), spiced with cinnamon. The hubby and I love this drink and order it often, but it's so much cheaper and healthier to make it yourself! This recipe is a simple and quick version of the real horchata, as that one is soaked with cinnamon sticks. But this is still a very tasty alternative and easy to whip up to cool you down on those hot summer days.

Horchata: (serves 3-4)
Ingredients:
4 cups rice milk
1 cup milk of your choice (I used non-fat)
1/3 cup sugar or agave
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract


Directions:
Add milks, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla to a blender, mixing well. Pour into a pitcher or couple of mason jars. Refrigerate until ready to serve and stir before serving.
